About This Game

DINO RUN DX is an ongoing evolution of the classic prehistoric multiplayer racing game. Control your iconic raptor through an endless assortment of procedurally generated landscapes and outrun the ever-approaching WALL OF DOOM. Will you end up one of the millions of doomsday casualties, or will you ESCAPE EXTINCTION?

-A unique experience every time you play... no two levels are ever the same.
-3 major single player gameplay modes: CHALLENGE, PLANET D and SPEEDRUN (currently 24 speedruns with more coming soon).
-Realtime multiplayer with chat, matchmaking and more unique levels to race in. Climb the ranks and show your dominance!
-Choose from a staggering number of hat and color combinations to hone your look... unlock even more hats by completing game milestones.
-FREERUN MODE: turn off the doom, chat with other players during actual gameplay, spawn boulders and npc dinos, roleplay.... do what you want!

How is DX different than previous versions of the game?
If you've only played the web version from years ago, you'll find DX is a dramatic improvement with more levels, hats and gameplay options. If you've played Dino Run SE, the major differences right now are completely redone backgrounds and an extra layer of polish, true fullscreen mode, controller support, steamworks integration, improved multiplayer security, and a few more hats and colors to choose from. We are also currently working on even more improvements to the game and will continue to roll out new features as long as there is interest and support. This is our pledge to you! More info on upcoming features can be found at http://www.pixeljam.com/dinorun.

Fun Facts:
-The original web version has been played over 100 million times (source: Mochibot)
-Pixeljam, the creators of Dino Run, have made over 20 games since 2006.
-Dino Run helped pioneer the "runner" genre of games, before it was popularized on mobile and started to truly suck.
-Dinosaurs did not actually wear hats, but there are tiny traces of them in the plastic tightening straps on all baseball caps.

My dino...has a hat. 10/10.
(I've actually played this game a lot on Kongregate before it was on Steam, it's just a great game overall.)
(...and... apparently I tried to post this review after a minute of playing it, so that tells you how good it is too.)

I remember those ancient times I played this online...
And now it´s on Steam since last yeahr?!?! How could I have missed this?
This might look ridiculous, but it´s one of the funniest, cutiest and unique pixelart games, for me it´s also one of the first games I remember to have played. My Skills have decrased by a lot sincwe then, but I still enjoy this as well. Of course, this is not a thing you can play for weeks and hundrets of hours, but a run is always fun! 5,99$ is probably a little too much money, but when it´s on sale it´s absolutuely worth.

Very addictive and fast paced gameplay. The 8-bit graphics fit the gameplay and also allow for it to run on low-end PC's. I think £10.99 is a bit steep though, so I think you should get in a sale or directly from them via their website (they give the Steam copy).

Man, this version is great, and I come from SE, i love the stable framerate and the extras.
Multiplayer is not as active sadly but offline is still a blast.

Just one question, is there a seed code for the original 7/8 levels of challenge mode from the other versions?

All-in-all, this is a great game that most of you probably remember from your childhood.

For those of you that don't remember it, it's a game where you play as a little pixel dino (which you can customize with MANY colors and hats) on a 2D plane, running from a wall of pyroclastic doom, collecting little eggs, eating critters, and avoiding obstacles like falling trees, big slow dinosaurs running into the wall of doom for some reason, tar pits, and more. As you play, you gain DNA points for doing things such as eating a certain amount of critters or collecting a hidden egg. These DNA points can be used to upgrade your dino's speed, strength, and jumping ability to help you in the higher difficulties.

The main mode is Challenge mode, where you run through a progressively harder gauntlet of maps, (there are fewer maps to run through to get to the end on lower difficulties) collecting eggs to give you more tries if you should fail.

There is also a speedrun mode, where there are various challenges for you to attempt, such as many stegosauruses getting in your way, or swarms of pterodactyls.

Throughout all of the modes and levels, there are secret eggs to collect which increase your DNA to upgrade your dino. Collecting them all requires playing on every difficulty, and you won't find every egg in just a single run.

The multiplayer is functional and very fun, but the community is very small.

This game has great replayability thanks to it's multitude of challenges, collectibles, and trophies to collect, definitely worth the price for the amount of content it has.

I started playing this game from a young age I can't even remember and I have always gone back to it, over the years I have seen it improve massively and I'm proud to say that I love this game, it's extremely joyful and entertaining for me and for many others. There are many things I love about this game, but something that is worth a mention is the hugely addictive multiplayer. I have always found the community, even it's changed as I have played, a delight to talk to and play with. I massively recommend this game to honestly anyone. Please pick it up. I beg you!

I've known this game since I was 10 years old and I'm still playing it now even though I'm 18. Really the game that defined the running genre.

iirc this is the game that replaces "f*** you" in chat with "Lets Cuddle"

Its pretty simple, but very well made. You do everything dinosaurs do, including: running, eating and becoming extinct. Its great.

Devs sent keys to everyone who bought the game. I think I actually got it on a free day many many years ago and they sent me a key anyway. They are the real heros.

Also devs if you're listening, hit us up with some splitscreen and controller support. That would be great.

A fun and addictive game with a great community of people and a magical adventure inside a T-rex's large intestine.


You'll be racing your friends for hours. And with a dedicated crowdfunding platform made by the creators of this game, more updates are sure to come in the future.

Game includes magical cat gods that will lead you to paradise and performance enhancing drug flowers.

here is some game play of both modes

Game type- 2d side scroller
* The end is nigh and as a small rapter you do the only thing you know how to, run!
* You start by picking your color and a spiffy hat, then it's off to run, duck, & jump for your life.
* The sky is falling so run, though other dino's, falling debris, lava, run, run RUN!!
* Don't forget to prey on the weak and grab any lesser lizards, birds, worms & eggs.
* You can also ride some of the bigger bipedal lizards or get carried by pterodactyls.
* Eggs will let you increase your states and the bones will let you buy unlocks.
* You win by finding a safe haven from the falling sky.

Its a really cute game and good for relaxing stupid fun.

An instant classic, Dino Run is one of my favorite little games. A long time player and it rarely gets old. Has enough modes and difficulty levels to give you a good thrashing when you're running from your demise. Achievements, trophies, and the like are also a great feature, they can be very hard but rewarding in the end. Speed runs are a good way to occupy yourself when you've completed campaign, and do get challenging! Unlike other games, the top level achievemments and hardest difficulty 'insane' are truly difficult. The controls are very simplistic but there's a learning curve to jumping about to keep your speed up. Customization with hats and colours help you trick out your dino. Be a spacedino! A fancy top-hatted one! Up to you! The only issue one may find is multiplayer, while great in its implementation you'll find it a bit deserted. The single player alone should more than enough justify buying this game though! Overall, a fantastic game and I highly recommend this to everyone.
